A few Gramps spotted at Run Balmoral

As they will no doubt be too modest to tell you themselves and in case you don’t scrutinise the P&J…

Carolyn McLeod won the Women’s 10k race at Balmoral yesterday (21st overall) and Naomi won the Secondary Schools race and broke the course record by 15 seconds. Woohoo! Well done girls!
Sasha was the second senior male in the 5k (can just see his face over the Yellow Leader’s left shoulder in one of the photos) and Struan Kirk came 18th in the MPH Primary Boys 1.5k.

There may have been more of you but our ace sports reporters, Marianne and Naomi, didn’t spot you so apologies if that’s the case. A few photos attached, the 10k ones were taken by Naomi, and you can you just about spot Carolyn chasing/being chased by a pink tutu!

Thanks to Marianne for sending me the bones of this post and the photos. If anyone has any news on how the Highlander GRAMPs fared then let me know? Ta. R.

  • Mystery - can you help?
    After persistent enquiries - my thanks to everyone who helped - I've located nearly all the missing SOA trophies. Two are proving elusive: the Scottish Championships W70 quaich (pictured) and the Scottish Night Championships W21 trophy (also a quaich - no photo available).
